A comprehensive pocket guide to dinosaurs and prehistoric animals and the world they inhabited millions of years ago. Packed with more than 700 full-colour illustrations, this definitive pocket guide paints a vivid portrait of extraordinary dinosaurs and prehistoric animals, and the ecosystems they lived in millions of years ago. This guide features authoritative text, crystal-clear artwork, and a straight-forward approach to revealing the fascinating lives and habitats of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, marine reptiles, and prehistoric beasts. The introductory section explains classification systems, geological timelines, the evolution of the dinosaurs, and how fossils form. For ease of reference, the main body of the book is divided into three sections: the Precambrian and Palaeozoic eras, when animals first began evolving; the Mesozoic era, which saw the flourishing and eventual extinction of the dinosaurs; and the Cenozoic era, when giant mammals walked the Earth. Each section is broken down into its geological time periods, and, within these, the species are organized according to whether they lived on land, in the water, or in the air. There are detailed profiles of 200 dinosaurs and other ancestors of modern animals. Each entry combines a precise, jargon-free description with full-colour artworks, skeletons, and replica models, annotated to showcase the unique features of the species. Maps show where each animal's fossils have been found, and many profiles are supported by photographs to show actual excavation sites

Sensational discoveries during the past decade have shed new light on the most intimate details of dinosaurs’ lives, including their appearance and behavior, their family structures, and their sex lives. The latest dinosaur findings present a far more vivid and complete picture of this extraordinarily successful group of animals than would have been thought possible only a few years ago. Recent findings in South America, Madagascar, Mongolia, China, and Australia have revealed the existence of amazing and exotic dinosaurs. Paleontologist Henry Gee and artist Luis Ray have seamlessly integrated all of the most recent discoveries in the making of this unique book. In A Field Guide to Dinosaurs, Renowned dinosaur artist Luis V. Rey and paleontologist and writer Henry Gee use up-to-the-minute research findings to paint a vivid picture of the dinosaurs’ world. Their unique approach gives readers lifelike portrayals of dinosaurs similar to that of naturalists in the wild, observing living animals of our own era. Readers will experience dinosaurs as living, breathing creatures, with each kind described “from the field” and shown in breathtaking illustrations. Dinosaur physiology is shown in full-color paintings, anatomical sketches, and a host of fascinating incidental detail, much of it never published outside specialist journals. Readers will understand the dinosaurs’ environment in terms of the world’s changing face throughout the 180-million-year extent of the dinosaur-dominated Mesozoic Era, with a detailed, full-color chart that relates the time span of each dinosaur group. The book also includes at-a-glance icons that convey information about different dinosaur groups, including size, taxonomy, geological period, and geographical origins.

Moms are amazing. They run the household, pay the bills, prepare the meals, chauffeur the kids, monitor grades and cell phone use, and probably hold down a job outside the home. They are capable, wise, and understanding. What they are not, though, is football savvy. How could they be? They have no firsthand knowledge of the game (only a fraction of 1 percent of women have played the game), and they see this male-dominated sport through the eyes of a woman. Expecting a woman to know football is like expecting a man to give qualified opinions on childbirth and PMS. Most women would not see this as a tragedy. Most would readily admit that they couldn’t care less about the sport. Then their sons get involved in football. Maternal interest and concern kick in, and moms suddenly have many questions and very few answers. Football for Moms answers many of these questions. The purpose of the work is not to make every mom an expert on football. The objectives of the book are to allay parents’ fears concerning their sons’ participation, to provide a basic understanding of the game, to explain football’s significance in the development of young men, and to reveal the beauty of this great game—Oh, and to provide a few laughs. Old coaches (the dinosaurs) should also enjoy the insights and stories. Many of these accounts will undoubtedly spark reminiscences from their coaching days.

At age 10, author Craig Daniel was fascinated by dinosaurs. His interest was re-awakened when his daughter began pre-school and also took a shining to dinosaurs. Her interest was infectious, and once again he was hooked. He bought a dinosaur tooth at a local mall and then began collecting more and more fossils, until he developed a traveling natural history museum that he started taking to schools. This book is based on his presentation, but with many more fossils than he could ever bring out to the classrooms. Handbook to Life on Earth pictures dinosaur fossils as well as fossils from before and after dinosaurs roamed the Earth. "This is my way to put my school presentation in front of those whom I will never get a chance to meet personally and show the wonders of natural science. Hopefully this will encourage young students to read more and visit a natural history museum near them." Craig Daniel graduated with a B.S. in physics from Muhlenberg College. He presents natural history programs at area schools and at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This is a guide for creating readable, maintainable, reusable and faster code. No object oriented programming is involved. Out of all techniques which aim to improve your product's quality, readability has the highest return on effort. - Quality: Bugs are found mostly by reviewing other people's code. You can't review somebody else's code if you cannot read it. Bugs are not found by unit-tests, because unit-tests are created to capture errors that are known to exist. - Efficiency: Maintenance takes about 80% of developers' time. Therefore, spending some time in writing better code will save you more time during maintenance. - Performance: Unreadable code is difficult to reason about. Any opportunities for optimisation that may exist are often impossible to spot. The six techniques described are easy, therefore: - students can apply them - C programmers can follow it without changing programming paradigm - you can write idiomatic C++, instead of writing like C, Java, or Fortran.

But little do they know that Handa has an even bigger surprise in store! Ideal for reading aloud, Handa's Surprise is now available as a Big Book suited for sharing with groups of young children.
